When I hover over the "'r", the audio sounds like "hothnadair". Is that a mistake? When you play the full audio the r is barely heard so I assume so but not sure if I'm missing something.

The audio is saying 'collnod r' which is 'apostrophe r' when you hover over the r.

Yes, it doesn't do a brilliant job of pronouncing the r in yw'r, it's just one of the problems of the synthesiser.

If you copy this sentence into "ivona.com' and try the other Welsh voice there, it sounds better.

"How much the tickets" and "How much for the tickets" are both unidiomatic in English? Diolch yn fawr!

'how much the tickets' doesn't work in english, I'd say.

'How much for the tickets?' would work in some contexts i think, but in Welsh wouldn't that be ' faint [dach chi isio] am y tocynnau?' ?

I love how indignant the TTS sounds! 'HOW much?!'
